Partial heart transplantation is a new approach to deliver growing heart valve implants. Partial heart transplants differ from heart transplants because only the part of the heart containing the necessary heart valve is transplanted. This allows partial heart transplants to grow, similar to the valves in heart transplants. However, the transplant biology of partial heart transplantation remains unexplored. This is a critical barrier to progress of the field. Without knowledge about the specific transplant biology of partial heart transplantation, children with partial heart transplants are empirically treated like children with heart transplants because the valves in heart transplants are known to grow...

Background: Pediatric pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) is often progressive and treatment-refractory, requiring multiple interventions. Hybrid pulmonary vein interventions (HPVIs), involving intraoperative balloon angioplasty or stent placement, leverage surgical access and customization to optimize patency while facilitating future transcatheter procedures. We review our experience with HPVI and explore potential applications of this collaborative approach. Methods: Retrospective chart review of all HPVI cases between 2009 to 2023...

Background: Postoperative restenosis of the aortic arch after the Norwood procedure is still an important complication that significantly affects surgical outcomes. The rarity of the Norwood procedure for atypical aortic morphology means appropriate arch reconstruction methods and postoperative complications are still unknown. This study aimed to assess the rate of arch reintervention and clinical outcomes after the Norwood procedure for atypical aortic arch. Methods: This retrospective single-center study was conducted between 2001 and 2022...

Obstructed infracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous return is nearly always a surgical emergency in which infants present in severe cardiopulmonary distress. Ductal venosus stenting can provide a temporizing option for premature, low birth weight infants with high risk for surgical complications. In challenging anatomic cases, virtual reality, 3D-printed models, and fusion image guidance can aid in procedural planning and provide support for successful intervention.

We describe complex atrial baffling procedures in the setting of left isomerism with right-hand as opposed to left-handed ventricular topology. An appropriate understanding of the connections of the systemic and pulmonary veins, along with the internal atrial anatomy, as revealed using 3D printing, allowed for successful biventricular repair.

Anatomic and physiologic assessment of surgical repair of scimitar syndrome can be challenging. We evaluated the first patient who underwent the Lugones procedure in 2012 using 4D flow magnetic resonance imaging. With this technology, we demonstrate that the reconstructed right pulmonary venous return drains into the left atrium with laminar flow, just as normal pulmonary veins do.

Chylothorax in infants after surgery for congenital heart disease is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Numerous management modalities applied alone or in various combinations have been utilized but definitive guidelines have not yet been established. We present two infants who developed refractory chylothorax after congenital heart surgery. We also reviewed evidence for the use of available treatment modalities. In our experience, the use of lymphangiography followed by pleurodesis by povidone-iodine was safe and our impression was that it may have played a decisive role in controlling the lymph leak...

A nine-year old boy presented following a chest x-ray for COVID-19 infection that showed cardiomegaly. Transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a large atrial septal defect, dilated right heart, and normal function. Surgical repair was performed eight weeks after his COVID diagnosis. After weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass, pulmonary artery pressures were 2/3 systemic and ectopy was seen, requiring inotropes, nitric oxide, lidocaine, and amiodarone. He was discharged on postoperative day (POD) 5. On POD 6, he presented with acute right foot ischemia...

Ebstein anomaly is a myopathy of the right ventricle characterized by failure of tricuspid valve delamination with accompanying tricuspid regurgitation. Its rarity, considerable anatomic variability, and frequent absence of symptoms can make the timing of surgery challenging. Contemporary tricuspid repair techniques can be performed with low mortality and bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis reduces the risk of operation when right ventricular function is poor. Here, we present a patient who presented late for surgery, failed high-risk conventional surgery and required heart transplantation...

Anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is an uncommon life-threatening congenital heart defect that occurs mostly as an isolated lesion. It is very rarely associated with other cardiac abnormalities. In this report, we present a case of an infant who successfully underwent complete surgical repair of a rare triad of congenital heart defects, including ALCAPA, ventricular septal defect (VSD), and double aortic arch (DAA). To the best of our knowledge, this is only the second case of ALCAPA diagnosis associated with VSD and DAA that has been described in the literature...

Uhl's anomaly is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by the absence of right ventricular myocardium. The widely accepted pathological mechanism is intrauterine myocardial apoptosis. Uhl's syndrome carries a poor prognosis. In rare situations, patients with Uhl's anomaly reach adulthood. We will present a case of a 29-year-old patient with Uhl's syndrome treated at our center, highlighting the diagnostic, surgical, and postoperative challenges in management.

Introduction: The pulmonic valve-sparing technique (PVS) is an emerging approach of right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction in tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) correction aimed at reducing the incidence of pulmonic regurgitation (PR) and the need for subsequent reintervention. This study aims to compare the long-term occurrence of moderate to severe PR/stenosis (PR/PS) between three different approaches. Patients and Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study involving 173 patients who underwent TOF correction at Chiang Mai University hospital between January 2006 and December 2016...
